LAUTECH health workers urge payment of outstanding salaries

THE Medical and Dental Consultants’ Association of Nigeria (MDCAN), Ladoke Akintola University of Technology  {LAUTECH} Teaching Hospital, Osogbo has urged Osun state government to pay the four-month salary arrears being owed health workers in the institution. 

    It also asked the state government to refund deductions from members of associations and cooperatives in the institution running to about N150million. 

   The association, which made the call in a save-our-soul letter, dated 26th February 2015, signed by its chairman and General Secretary, Dr. Kazeem Adebayo and Tikunbo Olajumoke respectively said the government should heed the call in order to ameliorate the hardship being experienced by members. 

    Health workers in the hospital had declared an industrial action to press home their demand on sundry issues. 

    The association which said its members are still doing skeletal duty despite the strike said that outstanding issues including pension scheme and unpaid deductions must be paid by the state government to cushion the effect of hardship being faced by workers of the institution. 

   According to the statement, the association said medical consultants being the most senior medical workers are committed to the smooth running of the hospital and that members have put in their best in healthcare delivery despite the unpleasant experience.
